Only humans can keep the forest from drying up by moving away from fossil fuels if it is not already too late. There is no such thing as clean coal, just look at the destruction to Kingston Tennessee from the compromised fly ash slurry containment. Geo-thermal holds the best promise for the future. Still man must also chart a path of population control and conservation.

I have donated money in order to help save the Amazon rain forest but I do not understand how donating money can help prevent it from drying up. I had never though about the Amazon becoming a grass land or Savannah as mentioned, it is quite the phenomenon how the world and Earth is able to adapt and move on.

Add on top of that the loss of unique wildlife and the potential loss of some amazing medicines from plants and wild life as yet undiscovered and it really is a terrible loss for all.
